COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
We are teaching through the Book of Nehemiah on Wednesday nights. I hope you will make plans to come out and join in with us as we study this very contemporary book.
2018 presents us with a grand new opportunity to reach out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to reach in with the encouraging Word of God’s faithfulness. I hope you will resolve with me to abide more in Christ as we know that the only way to live a victorious Christian life is to yield to the Christ who lives in us.
Thank you for all your prayers, cards, and well-wishing comments while I was out sick, you are so encouraging and loving.
I John 3:9a, “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin.”
I remember reading this verse just after becoming a Christian and thinking, boy am I in trouble. I don’t know about you but I do know about me and the tendency to sin is ever present even after coming to the Lord for salvation. Does this mean that I have to be perfect and never again make a mistake? If being sinless is the only way to truly be saved, I’m hurting. Did you know that being sinless is the only way to be like Christ? Being sinless is not a demand on me, it is a demand on Christ, being a Christian is Christ who is sinless in me, and the more I abide in Him, I find that I sin less. Christians should not practice a sinful life style. If you are living in blatant sin and are not being convicted by the Holy Spirit, you are lost in your sin and you need Salvation.
I John 2:3, “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
In Christ, Ricky
